I don't agree with this but it is a fascinating look at our changing world. Speaking in San Francisco this weekend, the 25 year-old founder of Facebook stated, "Privacy is no longer a social norm. People have really gotten comfortable not only sharing more information and different kinds, but more openly and with more people.”
Mark Zuckerberg said that expectations had changed, and people now default to sharing online, not privacy.
"When I got started in my dorm room at Harvard, the question a lot of people asked was, 'why would I want to put any information on the Internet at all? Why would I want to have a website?'," he said.
“And then in the last 5 or 6 years, blogging has taken off in a huge way and all these different services that have people sharing all this information,” he said.
Comment: When I was 25 years old, I didn't worry about privacy either. Then I became older... and, hopefully, wiser.
